Valentine’s Day Cake

At some point during the second blizzard last week, I turned to Matthew and said, “What are we going to do for Daddy’s Valentine’s day gift?”

He didn’t even pause. “Let’s bake him a cake!”

Well, OK. I can do that.

After some very subtly questioning (“Hey, what kind of cake do you like?”) I decided to try a strawberry cake. Matthew helped for almost ten full seconds before he decided to play with his trucks.

The cake was pretty yummy, but not very pretty. Adding fresh strawberries to the cream cheese frosting made it very thin. Even after tucking the cake in the fridge for an hour, the frosting was pretty mushy.

They didn’t seem to mind.

Matthew wouldn’t take a picture. He was in a mood over something. Otherwise, it was a very nice Valentine’s day dessert.
